On Tuesday morning the Chicago Blackhawks announced they’re signing a big-time forward. Sadly, he won’t help them down the stretch… but he already helped them become a dynasty.
Marian Hossa will sign a one-day contract to retire, officially, as a member of the Blackhawks before Thursday night’s game.

Hossa is the greatest free agent signing in the history of Chicago sports. Not just the Blackhawks — all of Chicago sports.
He authored some of the most incredible moments of the dynasty. His two-way excellence led the Hawks to three championships. He was as good as advertised and then some, which has been painfully rare in this city.
